I'm a fan of Donna Karan Perfumes and bought this one when I was in New York in may. The first Perfume I bought from the Designer was DKNY, and have tried quite a few since them. I had a quick squirt of this in Macy's and treated myself to a bottle. Got it at a not bad price as we got the Dollar at a good price, which made it more economical.
The box for this is quite simple. Not sure if the bottle and box over here is different than the 1 I bought, but the box was a creamy colour and looked qutie expensive although it is simple. The bottle is a bit of an odd shape. The glass is frosted and it sort of twists to the 1 side and then the other side. You can see the liquid through the glass. The lid is also frosted and stands quite tall on the bottle. A nice looking bottle and quite ornamental. Again this looks quite expensive.
After looking online I see that this is currently selling on a website for £40 for the 50ml bottle. I think I paid about £34 for it, but not so sure. This Perfume has been out since 1996 so must still be doing ok if still for sale and at this price.
The scent of this is nice. According to the website the description is "Cashmere Mist from Donna Karan is as soft and comfortable to wear as a cashmere sweater." Sounds nice, but doesn't tell us anything about it. So what are the notes in here? They are Lily of the Valley, Suede, Bergamot, Jasmine, Sandalwood, Amber, Vanilla, Musk and Cedarwood. All sounds quite heavy, and I suppose it is, but it is a nice rich Oriental scent with the added sweetness of Vanilla mixed through. I don't like Lily of the Valley and didn't know this was in here, but I can't smell it so that's ok.
This lasts a good lenght of time as well, and after the initial 20 minutes of spraying this and the first stronger scent settling down then it is a mix mix of heavier notes and fresher more subtle ones.
This is nice and I would buy it again, but I would be mroe inclined to buy again if it was slightly cheaper. Not my favourite one out of the designer brand, but still a nice one and I think this would make a nice Present for a Perfume lover.
